    \[\int\limits_{}^{}\ln (\sqrt[3]{x})\] That is x to the 3 root

    it might help to think of the cube root of x as x^(1/3)

    then use the power rule

    ok do u want me to solve it or should i tell u how to do it

    ok I got as far to as thinking of x^(1/3) lol

    now use the rule that integral of x^n = (1/(n+1))*x^(n+1)

    so do u mean put 1/3 in front of the ln of stuff and then put it in front of the entire integral? bc that's what I did and it said it was wrong = (

    there's no ln involved here

    ok maybe you should write the whole thing out cuz now you're just confusing me, please, thank you

    no yeah i already know that lol we're in the chapter of integration by parts and there is a ln involved it's in the front of the x^(1/3)

    not to interrupt, but i think the starting point here is \[\frac{1}{3}\int \ln(x)dx\] which you do either by parts or by memory

    oh my bad, i didn't see the ln at the very beginning just thought it was cube root of x

    since \(\ln(x)\) is a very common function, it might be benificial just to memorize \[\int \ln(x)dx=x\ln(x)-x\] you can check by differentiation

    yes that's what i did. oh damn nvm hahaha i think i get it I keep getting it confused that the derivative of ln is 1/x and we don't know the integral of ln yet so we have to do integration by parts lol

    your answer is therefore \[\frac{1}{3}\left(x\ln(x)-x \right)\]

    you can use taylor series to integrate this easily

    i would memorize it just like remembering that \[\frac{d}{dx}\sqrt{x}=\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}\]so while your fellow classmates are integrating by parts, you just write down the answer

    i won't recommend that method

    what about\[\int\limits \ln e^{^{x ^{2}}}dx\]

    so these are 3 examples that can't be used by just memorizing the specific case

    so basically use integration by parts like ur class mates
